At the end of February, we had the pleasure of hosting Kara Goucher here in Miami.
Kara spent most of the morning meeting the team and learning a bit more about what being part of Team Zensah is all about. We then decided to put her to work and made her the Zensah customer service rep for a half hour. Once people found out through Twitter, the phone lines started going crazy. Fans were even skeptical when she picked up the phone, and they didn’t know what to say!
The team also went over some product design with Kara & her assistant, who was quite hard to impress and very rigorous in his testing.
“Everyone has been so friendly, it really does feel like a family!” – Kara Goucher
Zensah & Runner’s Depot Davie also hosted a Meet & Greet with Kara. Over 200 people showed up to meet one of the running world’s most popular characters. Runners of all levels were able to ask questions, learn from Kara and get their pictures with her.
Zensah also invited some of South Florida’s influential runners to partake in a photo shoot along with Kara at the beautiful South Pointe Park in South Beach. Albeit a bit colder than usual for Miami, the weather was sunny and everyone was all-smiles during the shoot. The only complaint from the runners/models was that they were not getting to run enough!
We’re glad that we were able to bring Kara down here and get her to share with our community and see a bit of what it’s like to be a runner in South Florida. Hopefully we’re able to do more events with her and South Florida’s running community soon!
You may be getting ready for your first track and field meet or training for a marathon doing speed work on the track. Now matter what takes you to the track, it’s plays a huge role in our running lives.
Spring marks the start of outdoor track and field season, so to celebrate we asked Kara Goucher to help us answer a few questions:

This past weekend, Kara Goucher took the first steps in her comeback, as she ran the TCS New York City Marathon. After 15 months of not racing, it was exciting and inspiring to see Kara toe the start line and give it her all. Race conditions were tough with cold temperatures and strong winds. But Kara gave it her all and we are excited to have her back and running!
